Obviously, photos can be great educational tools with English Language Learners and with any students (see The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons). I post about many photo galleries, also called slideshows. To do it in a little more organized way, though, I recently began this weekly feature called “Photo Galleries Of The Week.” This post is a “round-up” of online slideshows I’m adding to various “The Best…” lists:

Photo Gallery: Pedestrian Signals Around the World comes from Spiegel Online. Thanks to Michelle Henry for the tip. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures.

A simple day in the life… is a slideshow from the Boston Globe. I’m adding it to the same “The Best…” list.

The Best Of Sign Language comes from The Telegraph. I’m adding it to The Best Collections Of Funny Signs (For Use In English Classes).

An Oxford Professor has identified eleven images he says are the most “iconic” in the world, and the BBC has created a slideshow of them. It doesn’t quite fit, but I’m adding it to The Best Sites To See “Photos That Changed The World.”

A History of Map Monsters is a slideshow from Slate. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Historic Maps.
